Get up from that chair!

According to a study of 2,223 participants in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey done by researchers from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and appearing in Mayo Clinic Proceedings, sitting in your chair for two hours can be just as harmful as 20 minutes of exercise is beneficial.

Researchers recommend that, “If you’re stuck at your desk, shift positions frequently, get up and stretch in the middle of a thought, pace while on a phone call, or even fidget.” Also, try taking short walks throughout the day; take the stairs; have walking meetings; and instead of emailing nearby co-workers -- walk to their desk.

“I was good today -- I swear”

We would like to forget our past indiscretions -- that’s a given. However, there is new evidence that those who “distort past memories of their indulgences are more likely to indulge in the future.” Therefore, the researchers suggest that “people who know they are highly impulsive might want to take steps to accurately remember both past indulgences and moments of self-control (by keeping a detailed journal, for example).”
